San Diego author Brian S. Leon’s writing incorporates a variety of his skills and interests, which include mythology and fishing, in pursuit of which he has explored jungles and museums, oceans and seas all over the world. His reading pantheon ranges from Homer and Jules Verne to more modern writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, David Morrell and Jim Butcher. The seeds of his immortal warrior, Diomedes, can be found in the Iliad. Diomedes’ eternal life, spent in eternal battle, is documented in Havoc Rising, the first in the Guardian Chronicles, Brian’s debut novel.
